Luxury and design consciousness meet at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto.

Gracing the boutique-lined streets of Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood, the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto offers refinement and classical luxury to city visitors.

With 259 rooms and suites over 23 floors, there is an accommodation option to suit any need at the Four Seasons Toronto. Understated but luxurious interiors with splashes of colour pave the way perfectly towards Toronto’s cityscape outside: you’re hard pressed not to find a great view of the city from any of the rooms. Framing the city through huge windows wraps guests up in the heart of the city, but simultaneously gives the feeling of being in a private haven in the heart of the buzziness.

Accommodation at the Four Seasons starts with the 46m2 Superior Rooms and increases in size to two-bedroom corner suites with at least 109m2 of floor space; some suites are even bigger. Even the smaller rooms feel plush and spacious, leaving guests wanting for nothing. Crescent shaped sofas are perfect for relaxing or enjoying in-room dining, while elegant desks are ideal for those who need to do a little work on their travels. In-room iPads mean everything is available at the touch of a button and allow you to keep a close watch on the weather forecast.

Interior bathrooms have the option of bringing the city and natural light into the decadent space with sliding doors. A separate monsoon shower, a freestanding bath and TV add further luxuries to the bathroom.

Elsewhere in the hotel, there are delights to be found. The ninth floor houses the 2,797m2 spa, complete with an indoor pool, hot tub and balcony with stunning views over the city from a private location. With an impressive 17 treatment rooms and a yoga studio, the spa is a place where time can easily disappear.

The lobby area is full of typical Four Seasons appeal, with tall ceilings, an interior finish of polished mahogany, intricately carved wood and neutral tones, with staff on hand offering exceptional service. Café Boulud can be found on the second floor: a modern French brasserie from a Michelin-decorated chef which has become a stalwart on Toronto’s dining scene.

It’s no surprise the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto embodies the best examples of the Four Seasons brand, since Toronto is the home town for Four Seasons. The first ever Four Seasons hotel opened in the city of Toronto in 1961, while the current hotel was built from scratch and opened in 2012. The hotel stays true to its roots, with hundreds of artworks by Canadian artists found throughout the building.

The Four Seasons Hotel Toronto holds true to its values and celebrates its beginnings in this very same city. Business and leisure visitors find everything they need and more within the property’s boundaries. And when they do venture out into the city, they know they have a home waiting for them again when they return.
